Review summary

the cruise was great and as is with Holland America, the service and food was awesome.  Would have liked a bit more entertainment on board but other than that, can't complain.  The train ride from Denali to Anchorage was also great.  our rail guide kept us entertained and the scenery was breathtaking.  the only thing I can somewhat remark on in a slightly negative light is the hotel in Anchorage (Westmark).  It was not quite up to the Holland America standard.  It wasn't bad, just not what I would expect from HAL.

Ship tip

Open seating for dinner is the way to go. Seating in the Lido was hard to come by at peak hours so recommend eating at off peak hours.
